  1. There are no Office Programs (aside from OneNote on iPhone, but that’s more or less just a pilot test) available for iOS or Android; those promgars are restricted to MS devices running either Windows or Windows Mobile (WinMobile 6 or WP7). Windows 8 is going to be a sort of hybrid OS from what I can tell and allow for normal desktop use and be optimized for tablet and other mobile devices that can support it while sporting the same Metro UI that you see in WP7 so if you can wait for about another year those devices will start rolling out with Office on them.Was this answer helpful?
